So, it started out as a joke but somehow I find that its actually the best way to explain what this year’s When Women Worship theme is about.
When I declared this was the theme
“What does it mean?”
“What language is it?”
“Is it Hebrew? Greek? or tongues?”
So I actually didn’t know if I wanted to keep people guessing or I wanted to tell them the meaning. So of course I spoke to my Pk about it and trust him to come up with something mischievous.
“Anytime people ask you the meaning of AMAGHIMO tell them ‘I don’t know’ with a straight face.” He said
“Ah! That’s not fair” I said not missing the pun.
“Well isn’t that the meaning?” He asked with a smirk firmly planted on his face.
Honestly, I had an I give up moment.
My pk plays too much….
So anyhow I can’t lie I was tempted because people kept asking “what does it mean?” “What does it mean?” So I decided to try my pk’s suggestion and yesterday at the worship meeting we had at our island centre with joe praize
Anyhow so as I was saying, the opportunity presented itself. As soon as my Pk announced When Women Worship one of our staff members who was standing beside me asked “mama what does it even mean?”
Straight face on I didn’t flinch I simply replied “I don’t know” and she laughed half shocked saying. “You don’t know?” Someone beside me then tells her “Amaghimo is ibo for I don’t know” now with the pun not lost on her she begins to laugh then mutters “so we are going to worship God with I don’t know? Hmmm…”
So I asked her a question. I said “When you look over your life and you want to praise God where do you start from?”
Without even missing a beat. She said “Ah! I don’t know o!” Then she opened her eyes like the revelation had finally hit her.
“Exactly!!!” I said “Amaghimo”
That’s where the theme of this year’s meeting was born from. An answer to a question I’ve been asking myself since the beginning of the year.
I still remember when PITA tagged me on a song he had just heard. He said mama you need to hear this. Now you need to understand that pita sings (pun intended) and has great taste in music so if he tells you a song is good, best believe it is.
However I wasn’t so expectant for some funny reason maybe because I didn’t know the guy: PASSWORD. I’d never even heard of him. When I listened to tha song it just spoke my heart. I loved it instantly. Even David loved it and was rocking to it in no time.
I just loved the song but didn’t think much of it until months later when surprise surprise who shows up in church? Password!!! In the flesh. Then as if that wasn’t enough he fell in love with DCC and became a part of our family so when I told him I was stealing the title of his song as my theme for #WWW2016 he graciously agreed and even offered to come minister it live!
I’m thankful for such life happenstances. Those so called coincidences where God brings people into my life and they become a part of my life, family, ministry and destiny. Where God had planned it all along and it just starts unfolding bit by bit before my eyes as pleasant surprises.
There are too many of such people. Too many people who give to me too. They pray for me. They comfort me. They give of their time, energy, wisdom and life to make sure Gods work is done and I’m still here. I’m thankful for them. For the wonderful people God has surrounded me with.
So by now you know that password will be at #WWW2016
Now the extra good news is it’s one programme but two centers. So if you are on the mainland or the island we’ve got you covered. That’s why I’m thankful for the Island tent that just arrived. We are still working on it though. Still setting up but I’m thankful that we can finally bring the goodness of #WWW2016 without dragging our island women down to the mainland.
God has been good to us at DCC. Most times all we have is a dream not necessarily physical cash but God always blows our minds. I’m not surprised though
I’m looking forward to the finished tent though and by the time #WWW2016 comes around it will be all done.
Here are the dates ladies. Mark your calendars
OkAy guys I survived another day of blogging and thankfulness. Let’s keep going.
